we were in a similar situation. My mom just ended up hiring two of my little sisters guy friends to do the set up. they did the set up and I think my mom gave them like $100 each.

I’m doubling my centerpieces as aisle decorations (they’re wrought iron trees with crystals, I’m putting them on pedestals to line the aisle for the ceremony, then putting them straight on the tables for centerpieces).  I’m getting the trees and everything from the florist, so she’ll be setting all that up.  I’m having the reception in the same room as the ceremony so while everyone is having cocktail hour, my DOC and florist will be setting up the reception space.  

My only request was to not be involved in any way whatsoever in the set up or break down.  I’ve been assured this won’t be a problem, but we shall see!

My venue is setting up and breaking down everything for the ceremony and reception. I’m suppose to bring all my stuff the day before, go over the set up with the coordinator and just show up the next day. I’m a little scared because I’m a bit type-A but I fully plan on taking a look at everything before guests arrive.

My venue and florist set everything up for us!  We just had to bring everything in a couple of days before with instructions and they set everything out.  Then our florist came in the day of and set up all the centerpieces and such.  Made life so easy on us!

Our venue will have people there to set up tables/chairs/etc. A friend volunteered to be the “wedding designer” and she’ll oversee the decorations. 🙂

Our coordinator/planner did all of our set up.

m just @Cheeks11: I a just like you! Although where we are getting married doesn’t provide setup for us. We have to coordinate all the vendors and decorations and setup ourselves which is kinda fine with me because I am SO type-A that I will probably want to spend part of my time that morning helping set things up and making sure they are perfect. But then again, I like doing that kind of thing too. I’m sure that desire will change when it gets closer to time. lol
